I like projects like these, reimaging Tarantino movies as Penguin paperbacks. The only thing I'd change wold to keep all the covers simpler (Kill Bill in particular) and the colour scheme reduced, like the Penguin paperbacks of old. My favourite is Death Proof (I quite like the film too...)
Any video where Lego gets used to mechanically do something, not only gets linked to, but also gets relinked.
This home got relinked because of the fantastic conservatory attached to it. So envious.
I love everything about this tower Summer home- it's cladding, shape, space, interiors. Fantastic.
I love this simple home, which is deceptively large. I wouldn't mind this as my summer home in France.

I got hold of the movie, and not only was I suitably enamoured by the soundtrack, I also loved the look of the movie throughout. Not just the CGI imagery within 'The Grid' but also the production design in the real world.
The production designer was Darren Gilford and his work is beautiful. He has also done the production design on Oblivion, with Tom Cruise, which also looks really beautiful too. I can't wait to see it.
I've posted some screenshots below of the first part of the movie, to avoid spoilers. There is also a home made of shipping containers, and everyone knows that I love reused shipping containers...

I love Lego, so I had to relink to this cabinet. As I said in the original link post, a lot of these Ikea Hackers posts are woeful, but this almost looks like an official Lego product.
I don't think I could make up my mind between a contemporary and a traditional home. I'd probably juxtapose the two together, like this home in the UK.
I relinked this home simply because I love the wooden pathway up to it. So nice.
I called this one of my favourite home exteriors in a while, so I had to relink to it. I love all the different cladding materials and the different directions the material lines take. The interiors are really nice too, especially the dining table 'chandelier'.
This is a striking defensive tower, renovated in Spain. On a barren landscape, in, what looks like, blistering heat, this stands, monolith-like. I love the cape around the staircase.

I love these photos on Flickr, especially the fact that the US National Archives are on Twitter. THis particular photo set is of the interior of the White House when it was completely gutted: “The decision was made to move the Trumans across the street into the Blair House for three years while the White House underwent a complete reconstruction within its original exterior walls.”
You don't often see a blind-printed label on food or drink, but this is special beer. It was brewed by the design company Equator Design, in their Sydney offices (!) for their clients. The wooden cases that house them, also built by members of the company, are a beautiful complement to them.
A gigantic monolith of a home, that sits amongst the trees on the side of a Mexican mountain. I'd say the masses of concrete keep it cool in summer and warm in winter.
I really like this rebrand of a football crest. It keeps the 'feel' of a crest, but is contemporary and so much slicker than the previous crest.
This fan that sits on top of a wood-burning stove, uses the heat generated from the stove to create an electrical circuit and spin the fan, distributing the rising heat from the stove throughout the room. I really love this idea, but shudder at the thought of a child putting their hands near it when in full flight...
